Statistically, workers’ compensation claims cost insurance companies millions of dollars each year in America. It is estimated that amputations are the most costly injury that workers sustain, with findings suggesting insurance companies pay out an average of $109,926 annually. There are many other injuries that workers sustain continuously, with some industries having higher concentrations of workers’ compensation claims.
This type of claim can be incredibly tricky to navigate, which is why you should consider hiring an experienced Isle of Wight County workmen’s compensation attorney to assist you with your claim. It’s hard enough dealing with the injuries you sustained while working; you shouldn’t need to focus on the legalities surrounding the accident. Let us at Hampton Injury Law PLC guide you on the laws and unique procedural structure that must be adhered to should you want to attain workers’ compensation benefits.
Unlike other areas of law, workers’ compensation law is unique because of its claims process. For instance, the documents required to initiate a workers’ compensation claim are called a claim or request for a hearing, while the injured worker seeking the hearing and benefits is called a claimant.
It’s incredibly crucial to note that a worker’s compensation claim is not a civil action or personal injury lawsuit against your employer. Essentially a workers’ compensation claim is an insurance claim that is requesting benefits be paid to you by your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance.
